Sure, let me give this a shot. So I’ve been here since day 1, and these are my thoughts - if anyone else wants to chime in that would be good. Again, this is my opinion.
There are a few things to measure “size of creator”.
- Total loops
- Total follower count
- Active followers
- Engagement (in particular - likes/comments on your latest videos)
Not an exhaustive list.
The thing is, a lot of people who started day 1 would have amassed a massive amount of loops and follower counts. Some people hit 1 million loops in a day, that probably wouldn’t be able to happen now. They also got a whole bunch of followers who never opened the app again. Obviously not to take away from their achievements, but this just doesn’t help them in the present.
My opinion for “big” these days is the frequency at which you hit the top of the popular page. People call me “big”, I have a few videos that have gone viral, but I am still under 1k followers. Does this make me small or big? I don’t know.
But if you look at people like senorpequenos, snackteam, mynameiskawena, jenandkat, UtzDude, MegaByte, charliecooper (yeah ok i watch a lot of people) where they are consistently hitting the top of popular (which is where the active followers come in), I would call these guys big.
So by this logic, I would say someone who is able to hit let’s say top 5 or top 10 on popular for a few hours a few times a week or like 7/10 of their last videos did this, then I’d classify them as big (all of these numbers are approximations, just trying to show you the stats that I’m looking at).
I’ve been able to hit top 5 or top 10 let’s say 8 of my last 50 videos. That’s not consistent enough for me to think I’m “big”.
